Geschichte einer jungen Schlagersängerin, die mit einer mittelmäßigen Band durchs Land zieht und an ihrem großen Auftritt - ihrem Solo - arbeitet. Ihr hoch gesetzter Lebensanspruch, ihr Suchen nach menschlicher Bindung und ihre entschiedene Abwehr von Gleichgültigkeit, Mittelmaß und vorschneller Zufriedenheit machen es ihr schwer, ihre Identität zu finden. Sehr realistischer, die Individualität des Menschen betonender, kinowirksamer Gegenwartsfilm. In der Offenheit der Konfliktdarstellung zu zurückhaltend. Empfehlenswert (Kath. Inst.f. Med.
